Effects of mods/hacks
« on: May 26, 2010, 12:04:46 am »
We have a race called "double" and "doubleyou", and here's the reason why we're so paranoid about it.

- The race he won in is called "double"
   - The word "double" comes from the only key you have to press to finish the race, which is the 'w' key.
- That race is meant to measure PC performance and ping, and it's zero percent competition.
   - Much like a dyno in real life: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=p4l-Dl73TpM
   - All you have to do is press 'w' til' you cross the finish line and your time will tell you how fast your PC/ping is compared to the others.



^ That screenshot is NOT the race results, it's the records for the race (hence when you go to a real life race-track, the track will have track records you can try to beat).

- Those records are more like benchmarks rather than track times, with mooman having the fastest PC and ping combination.
   - He runs a quad-SLI setup consisting of 2 GTX 295 cards and a quad core overclocked to 3.4GHz.
   - He has a 50mbps internet connection.
   - The server is just next door to his house.

Now, we've been running the race for a good year or so now, and no matter how much we buy hardware/overclock the shit out of our comps/turn off every process in our system/turn down graphic settings when doing that race, we cannot seem to get over the 7 second mark.

The only ways you could possibly go over the 7 second mark at the moment are:
- Have a better PC than mooman (not so likely unless you're one of these guys: http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=tR--2ivkFSQ)
- Live closer to the server than mooman (not so likely since he's already the closest thing on earth to our damn server)
- Use hacks
- Install car mods (and yes, even if you don't edit the handling.cfg file, wheel dummies on the car model affects handling. Try putting the handling line of a Turismo to that of the mower, and you'll know what I'm talking about.)

^ in that case, [NWA]WSD has some sort of surface mod (probably to make handling more realistic) but he didn't realise that it affected his performance on a straight line.

I do hope you've put enough effort into reading all of that.
